Remedy for Hosta Hungry Slugs - does this work?
I read in "Gardening Life" that "Diatomaceaous Earth" - is a white powder that when sprinkled around hostas (or other plants) removes the protective coating of slime on a slugs underbelly as they move over it. You reapply after each rainfall. Does anyone use this?
It said that this was safe around kids & pets. My question is this:
1)Is it safe to use around a goldfish pond?
2)Does it kill the slugs or simply deter them?
3)Would it harm the worms?
4)If it is safe in all cases, where is this stuff available?
Thanks for all postings in advance
